Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer and Hengeler Mueller are among a line-up of top firms to have advised on a dual-track deal that has seen private equity giant BC Partners purchase Germany's Springer Science+Business Media for €3.3bn (£2.8bn). Swedish private equity group EQT Partners and Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC settled on a sale to BC Partners after considering both an initial public offering (IPO) and a direct sale of the science publisher. Hengeler advised EQT, with separate teams handling the sale and proposed listing. The sale team comprised M&A partners Hans-Joerg Ziegenhain, Alexander Nolte, Maximilian Schiessl and Albrecht Conrad, tax partner Matthias Scheifele, finance partner Daniel Weiss and labour partner Christian Hoefs. Hengeler's team on the proposed IPO included Schiessl and fellow corporate partners Reinhold Ernst and Dirk Busch.
